Since 2007, the GMS Working Group on Agriculture (WGA) has supported the GMS countries to carry out a study on strategies and options for biofuels and rural renewable energy development in the GMS. The study resulted in the development of a GMS Strategic Framework and Action Plan for Biofuels and Rural Renewable Energy (RRE) that was endorsed during the Fifth Meeting of the Working Group on Agriculture (WGA-5). To support the implementation of the Framework and to realize the full potential of this sector, this regional capacity development technical assistance (R-CDTA) is required to conduct prefeasibility studies, and to develop human and institutional capacity including that of the private sector. Under the R-CDTA, new technologies developed and adopted in the rural context elsewhere will be pilot tested to acquire knowledge for scaling up in the proposed regional investment project in the ADB pipeline.
